    Should we look for curb feelers and wrap your wagon with fake wood too? Lol.

    Most people here are going to advise you not put those on your wagon. The fact that you can't find any custom made for the V should also tell you something. I'm sure you can go to Pep Boys and find some universal set that you could make fit if you really felt you wanted them. Personally I think they will look terrible on a V but everyone's taste is different.

    I posted on 1-31-12, "Splash Guards For CTS-V" and got the same "get curb Feelers also", and to this date I can't seem to find any that fit.

    Google search Z06 mud guards. Maybe you could heat them up with a heat gun and make them fit.

    Here is a link for front guards for the Z06 that do a great job on my 2013 427. I will do the same to my 2013 V if I can find a similar design. Don't listen to all the mindless comments. Combining front extensions or guards with 3m ventureshield clear rocker protection saves a ton of road rash and looks great. Club Malibu's 2010 V probably looks like its been bead blasted by now anyway so...................... by the way this is my first post on this forum, welcome everybody!

    Should be abler to find plenty at local truck stops.
    Don't forget fuzzy dice, coon skin cap, coon tail,
    Brylcream, & / or suicide knob.

    Welcome kj.

    Best solution is xpel or other paint protection on the rocker panels and rear bumper. IMHO this preserves the aesthetics of the V best and provides excellent protection. I have done this on two Vs. when I turned in my 2009 V, the paint in that territory was perfect other than a tiny garage mark I made on the rear side bumper.

    Those fuzzy dice probably look great on that Buick huh Gary? Don't forget your ManBra buddy! Seriously though a well designed front fender guard will deflect most of the potential hazards leaving the rest for the clear rocker protection. I learned from an 2008 Z06 that was peppered from the front tires and it only took a few thousand miles. You won't notice right away because the damage is mainly in the clear coat.
    The Corvette front tire sticks out more than the V but it would definitely benefit from a small, well designed, unobtrusive front guard. I just bought the V so I don't know whats available.

    The Buick nor the Cad wear any of that stuff, although I have seen an occasional turbo Buick with them.

    There is a lot of hate for mud flaps. I personally don't mind the look of the molded plastic low profile ones on most cars, but I don't know how effective they are.

    I think you'd be better off getting clear protective film put on the areas of concern. It will look more clean and protect much better. And don't be driving that car on dirt roads!!

    Here are some Yosemite Sam mud flaps (if the link doesn't get obliterated): http://www.mycoolcarstuff.com/produc...FY5xOgodozwAlw

    Maybe you can find some playboy bunny door locks, too.

    (Sorry, man, just having fun. But IMO there are better options for rocker and fender protection these days, as noted above). But it's your car....have fun with it.

    Cheers.
